Why has Samsung put four cameras on the Galaxy A9?

Samsung has announced a new smartphone which the company says is the world's first to feature four rear cameras.

The A9 has a 24-megapixel main camera, as well as telephoto, ultra wide-angle and depth lenses created to help with a broad range of mobile photography. It also has a 10MP f/2.4 sensor with a 2x optical zoom feature, an ultra wide 120-degree 8MP f/2.4 lens and a 5MP sensor (f/2.2) for depth. The glass-bodied phone (no wireless charging though, sadly) is available in your choice of Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue or Bubblegum Pink - the latter two of which take a leaf out of Huawei's book with some really stunning gradient finishes. Dubbed as the Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), it comes with a total of five cameras- four on the rear side and one on the front side.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) is powered by octa-core (4x2.2GHz + 4x1.8GHz) processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM.

The horizontal camera system has a main 24-megapixel f/1.7 main camera at the top of the alignment, which is the sensor that will be used for generic images and low-light shots.

On Thursday, Samsung has officially unveiled the A9, a photography-oriented mid-ranger with a total of four rear cameras.

Just as importantly, Samsung has thrown an impressive 6GB of RAM into the phone, so it should ace multitasking, while 128GB of storage makes the price more understandable - after all, the 128GB version of the OnePlus 6 sits at £569 in the United Kingdom, £20 more than the A9.

The leaks just keep on coming for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy A series. The high-end Glaxy A9 is equipped with some other exciting features such as big display, powerful SoC and a large battery. No Pro or Star after its name, just Galaxy A9.

Samsung is yet to roll out Android 9.0 Pie update to its flagship Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones and rumours suggest that Samsung would also add AI-features exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 along with the Android Pie upgrade. Well, it is finally here and we will be discussing this and more in the official announcement.

Its screen is a 6.3-inch Full HD+ panel (for a 2,220 by 1,080 resolution).

"We're excited to deliver on this promise and debut world leading smartphone camera technology with the Galaxy A9".

The Galaxy A9 will be available in selected markets from November.
